Work Step by Step

Write 81 as $3^4$ to obtain: $=\sqrt[3]{3^4x^8y^6}$ Factor the radicand (expression inside the radical sign) so that at least one factor is a perfect cube, and then simplify to obtain: $=\sqrt[3]{(3^3x^6y^6)\cdot 3x^2} \\=\sqrt[3]{3^3(x^2)^3(y^2)^3 \cdot 3x^2} \\=3x^2y^2\sqrt[3]{3x^2}$
